Production worker, and warehouse. (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 21 June 2018
Good management, and benefits. Wages extremely low for size of company. No room for advancement, labor extensive depending if pipe lines are working. Every contract negotiation there is threat of company selling. Overall employees and management decent.
Free lunches during holidays.
Hard physical work, don't get off night shift till 8am.

The culture is a very positive one, although the work is challenging but it encourages the people to come in because the positive culture around it. Safety is the number one priority in this company and as a Westlake company, its very supportive towards its employees e.g. discretionary bonuses, good benefits, RRSP plans and other incentives.
Good bonuses, Safety First and Positive Environment

As a maintenance guys this is the worst place to work and very dusty enviournment
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 1 April 2018
Job 12 hours and on off days they suppose you will come to show your intrest towards learning. Company is unionise so salary according to contract. As I explain earlier you can come for overtime.But relly it sucks. Job security before probation nothing after that you will be under union. Advancement is nothing This plant having very old machinery and wires pipes are spreading like spider net. If you want to track one pipe it’s very tough to track. No drawings or manuals of machines are available. if anything you will find lot of changes already they have done after that so no means of that drawing. Non professional Management. Dusty enviournment and some time happens if some problem occur on line and you having your lunch you have to leave everything inbetween and go to see the problem. This was my worst experience ever.
After joining this job I realize running behind money is nothing then running behind life
Sr machine operator (Former Employee) – Langley – 1 March 2018
There are a few good employees there and 1 good supervisor. Favoritism is the problem here. They constantly reward the wrong employees for doing nothing. There’s no job advancement, and the upper management is unbearable. This workplace is racially divided and the management made it that way. Unless you can stomach a .40 cent raise a year, avoid this cancerous workplace!
Worker (Current Employee) – Canada – 23 January 2018
Working with the company for years now. Little changes in terms of pay and absolutely zero room for advancement within the company. Aside from great coworkers, decent benefits, occasional bonuses, and decent pay, the company does very little to recognize or satisfy its workers in terms of human resources and general conditions on all levels. No amount of work you do comes with any reward or acknowledgement. A fifth of your vacation days have to be used over the Christmas break when the branches are closed, in which you have no choice but to not work. You get 0 sick days, so catching the common cold comes at the price of an entire day's pay. This is especially frustrating in the winter seeing as how heat was cut to half the building to "save on expenses". This is Canada afterall, that's the cost of operating a business here. As long as you keep busy and have a good team to work with, the job itself is okay.
Little recognition, cost cutting, human resources.
Your are just a number, very stressful work enviroment
Office Staff (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 2 February 2016
been with this company for a number of years, and it went from a fun and great place to work to a very stressful and volitale work enviroment. You are not treated well by upper management, the moral within the company is at its all time lowest. The people that work here is the only thing that makes it worthwill to come to work every day.
Enjoyed working with a Few Good Long Term Employees
Supervisor/Head Shipper/receiver (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 17 July 2015
Learned something everyday working with Pipe and Pipe fittings (5000) different items . Management are Good People Too , My Co-workers will miss the most relating to "when the going gets tough / The Tough Get Going Co-Workers Kick In to Get the Jobs Done. Hardest Part of Job was Month End. Most Enjoyable was the Good Barbeques meeting Quotas on a Monthly Basis.
Packer (Current Employee) – Wood bridge, ON – 27 November 2014
I've been working at Royal Building Products for at least 6 months now, My job is to pack boxes with plastic vinyls. I've noticed a lot of foreigners who i have no problem with, But they tend to speak in their own language instead of English witch makes me feel uncomfortable sometimes. But none the less, Everyone is nice and hard working. The hours are long, The work is repetitive but the scheduled is balanced out nice, To where you work 44 hours a week and get 3-4 days off. For tall people when packing boxes, It will have a nasty strain on your lower back after a while. In the summer the factory get extremely hot, And in the winter it gets very cold. The Shifts are 12 hours and you get about 3-4 Hours to break witch is really good. The air is kind of dusty but you get used to it, The pay is very good for starters but for a job like this you must be dedicated and hard working.
